Instead of buying this book, just go to his website and save yourself a few bucks. This book mainly consists of postings from the bulletin board on his website.
I recommend Tom Woloshyn's "The complete master cleanse"

Although I haven't done the master cleanse yet, I feel confident in my commitment with this cleanse. Peter Glickman takes the guess work out of the Master Cleanse. I found the 12 pitfalls to be very informative, and I believe knowing the cravings (not hunger) will only last until the next day will make it easier for me to stick to the cleanse.
Seeing the postings from other cleansing people, helps me connect to the real problems that I may encounter during the cleanse.
I can't wait to get started on my master cleanse.

I did it! Thank you, Peter! April 30 2007
By A Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Peter Glickman's "Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days, Second Edition" is a definite aide in doing Mr. Stanley Burrough's "Master Cleanser" program. REMEMBER that this is not a DIET but a CLEANSE. This means you only do this periodically, like yearly, for 10 days or more in a single cleanse.


- This is not a DIET that one can adopt. This is a TEMPORARY CLEANSE. Just as undergoing surgery is not a new way of life but a short-term treatment where you actually leave the operating table. Think of cleansing for a colonoscopy - you don't continually cleanse for the rest of your life - so don't use the excuse that this is a dangerous diet.
- This is very DIFFICULT IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW the instructions to the letter.
- The Salt Water Flush is horrible tasting but is ABSOLUTELY necessary in order to remove toxins quickly. Do it even if it is unpleasant for you.
- Buy organic. Use the products as directed. Why would you cleanse to remove toxins and simultaneously add toxins during the cleansing program!

I first tried the "Master Cleanser" diet in 2005 and then again in 2006. Both times, I only made it 3 days because I chose to do this diet on my vacation. That did not sit well with my family who wanted to go out and have nice dinners. So, I tried it this time while still working AND with the use of this book by Peter Glickman.

I highly recommend starting this on the night before starting a 3-day weekend or 3 full days off of work. This is only due to the requirement to be near a bathroom during the flushing phase after coming off of solid foods. I truly mean it when I say that you MUST be near (like 2 feet away) a bathroom the first 3 days. I started it at work and had to leave to go home since I was 50 feet away from the bathroom.

I am starting my fourth cleanse in August. During my cleanse in 2007, I made it the entire 10 days. I lost 16 pounds in these 10 days and could truly feel the detoxification. This book and Peter Glickman's book truly helped me with the symptoms that I would experience as the fast went on day to day. Peter includes a great section of questions and answers that address the majority of the issues that people have in conducting the Master Cleanser fast.

The goal is to detoxify the body to the point that one's tongue returns to a natural bright pink color, as most of us have polluted our bodies to the point that we have a whitish coating on our tongues. I did not make it until my tongue was bright pink, but I did gain the benefit of the 10 day fast. My skin became smooth and soft. My energy felt higher. My concentration was clearer in the second half of the fast.

By days 5, 6, 7, and 8, I must warn that you will definitely feel the effects of detoxification. I described it as having a "headache" over my entire body. As long as one has the Lemonade, one can satisfy any hunger. One will experience yearnings for food whenever one smells others eating.

I loan my multiple copies of the two publications "The Master Cleanser" by Stanley Burroughs and "Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days, Second Edition" by Peter Glickman to everyone I care about. These two books combined are truly the greatest self-healing guide that I have ever used. I highly recommend this if you are experiencing the effects of poor nutrition, such as obesity, HBP, type II diabetes, gout, etc.

JUST DO IT!!!!! June 27 2006
By Susan B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just wrote a great, long review for this book and tragically, in the editing process it suddenly disappeared from my screen!!! So here's the short version: The book is VERY helpful. Get it. I just did the cleanse. It's GREAT. You can do it, too! One tip that's not in the book: for the sake of your tooth enamel, rinse your teeth after drinking the lemonade. Want to feel and look better fast? Do yourself a favor and give this book and cleanse a try.

Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days, Second Edition Feb. 24 2006
By J. M. Stephens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can't deny the benefits of this diet. The book is a quick read, provides basic instructions with simple explanations for each portion of the diet and is very specific about which products you need. The diet on the other hand, is 10 days of drinking things that taste terrible (especially the 32 oz. of salt water each morning - good luck with that one) and about 80 trips to the can every day. I recommend taking the week off or working from home unless you have a private facility for yourself at your place of employment.

This book answered every question I had about the Master Cleanse. Sept. 2 2005
By pizzagirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a life-saver for anyone doing the Master Cleanse and it is inspirational too! After reading this book, I know what to expect during the cleanse and why things happen. It describes the detox symptoms and which days are the hardest to get through. This book gives the reader a so much more information about how to do the cleanse than the original Master Cleanser book and why certain things are important. The shared experiences of other people in the book helped me know that I'm not the only one with a specific question about the master cleanse. I've had so many questions and I found all the answers right here.

It sure worked for me! May 9 2005
By Jon Lumsden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read Peter's book and did the cleanse with great success! As I did the cleanse, I already knew what to expect because it was covered so well in his book. Knowing about the detox symptoms and why I would feel good one day and bad the next, kept me going. Knowing which days were likely to be the worst was invaluable! I probably would have given up on the cleanse, but reading other people's reactions as they went through the cleanse day-by-day kept me on track. I'm so glad Peter put those in his book. I also bought and read The Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs and am so glad I read Peter's book also. Burroughs' book didn't mention the five classes of detox symptoms, which days are usually the worst, or have answers to the numerous questions I and others had. I was impressed that Peter kept the actual procedure of the Master Cleanse/Lemonade Diet exactly as Stanley Burroughs wrote it and gave full credit to Stanley Burroughs. It's nice to see someone that caring and honest. Burroughs book was the first, but I liked the simplicity and reading ease of Peter's book.
